The Eagles have just announced a dozen October dates on top of their 20-city summer tour. The trek, which will feature a guest appearance by co-founding guitarist Bernie Leadon, will take the form of a retrospective; with the band chronicling their group and solo catalogues over the past 40 years along with an all new multimedia presentation to mark the band's anniversary.
The band's newly added October dates will hit Lincoln, Nebraska; Denver, Colorado; Wichita, Kansas; Dallas, Texas; Memphis and Nashville, Tennessee; Indianapolis, Indiana; Rosemont and Moline, Illinois; and Kansas City and St. Louis, Missouri.
